The Trickster is NOT the same as the {{Jerkass}}. While the Trickster may be mischievous, impudent and uppity, he is not necessarily openly malevolent or sociopathic; in fact, in many cases Tricksters are ''more'' friendly to humanity [[JerkassGod than the gods are]].

It is possible, however, for a character to be introduced as a Trickster before being gradually or suddenly revealed to possess depths of cruelty and malice that make them truly villainous, in a form of BaitTheDog.

muffed a wikilink, fixing that
In modern literature, the Trickster survives as a character archetype, ranging from the [[Trickster Mentor self-aware and purposeful]], through the merely impulsive and mischievous, to an openly hostile antagonist. Mythical versions may also be [[HijackedByJesus Hijacked By Satan]], sometimes in direct contravention of their original legends.

noted Hoist By His Own Petard, better discussion of modern usage. Also, Prometheus isn't usually considered a trickster.
In mythology and religion, the trickster deity breaks the rules of the gods or nature, sometimes maliciously but usually, [[NiceJobFixingItVillain albeit unintentionally]], with ultimately positive effects. Often, the bending/breaking of rules takes the form of tricks or thievery, and their actions often end up ''changing'' the rules in the process of breaking them, much like an act of "civil disobedience". Tricksters can be cunning or foolish or both; they are often funny even when considered sacred or performing important cultural tasks. Despite this nuanced characterisation, tricksters are unfortunately prone to being [[HijackedByJesus Hijacked By Satan]] in modern adaptations. In modern literature the trickster survives as a character archetype. Often too, the Trickster is distinct in a story by his acting as a sort of catalyst, in that his antics are the cause of other characters' discomfiture, but he himself is left untouched.

While the Trickster may be mischievous, impudent and uppity, he is not necessarily openly malevolent or sociopathic; in fact, in many cases ([[Myth/GreekMythology Prometheus]], for example) Tricksters are ''more'' friendly to humanity [[JerkassGod than the gods are]].

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}, Marvel's version of the Norse God of Mischief and Lies. Varies from out-and-out villain to anti-hero, depending on the writer and the incarnation (for example, de-aged Loki is a lot less malevolent than his previous, older self).
